Cataract is a well-recognized complication of diabetes mellitus (DM). The onset varies, although the appearance commonly follows the initial DM diagnosis. We describe a case of a young man who presented with bilateral acute-onset cataract with good general health and no prior ocular symptoms. We also discuss considerations for surgical planning in this case. Financial Disclosure: Neither author has a financial or proprietary interest in any material or method mentioned.
